Space Odyssey Lunar Space Shuttle Model Prop
The original prop for the Lunar Space Shuttle from 2001: A Space Odyssey is heading for auction in Premier Props' March sale, bringing with it a high estimate of $100,000. So far it's the only item in the auction to have been announced, perhaps unsurprisingly since bidding doesn't even open for another month.
From a modeller's point of view the shuttle represents a good opportunity to get a closer look at an original prop vessel used in the filming that doesn't usually get much of a look in compared to the Discovery space craft or the space plane.
Is the $80,000-$100,000 estimate a little optemistic? Perhaps, though props from the film are as rare as hens' teeth and never come up for sale!
